We just published a blog post comparing history management on 3 different browsers. In light of that, we want to ask you, how long do you keep your browsing history for?

In case you’re not sure, go to Settings > Privacy > Save Browsing History to find out. If you’d like to learn more about History in Vivaldi, check out the following help pages:

  1. I rarely use it. I never clear it, but I don’t actually save it either.

  2. I’ll allow myself to repost here my message on the other topic :

    In my opinion, the 2 problems with “Delete browsing history in Vivaldi” are :
    1) When you use the Session only option in the Settings, it will correctly purge the history but it will NOT purge the closed tab list. I suppose it’s the same for the other options.
    2) The first problem would be minimal except for this second one : The Clear browsing data tool can only purge the closed tab list with a 50% success rate (rough estimation).

    The Private window is not a relevant solution. One could want to beneficiate from all the history and closed tab options inside a specific session AND not want his data to migrate to another one when opening the browser again (that is the way I use Vivaldi).
